The RISE Life Services ICF Program recently held a friendly and fun contest between the ICF residences. The program director instituted this contest to help draw interest in sharing referrals of those people who may be a good fit to join the RISE team as residential staff. One staff member, Nida Bokhari, from the Middle Island house won the first contest for referring the most applicants from September 1 to November 30, 2019.  She referred six people within that time period and has already referred five people in December for the new contest.

Nida Bokhari has been instrumental in assisting us with finding great candidates to work for RISE Life Services. She reached out to former colleagues at other agencies and even attended a job fair to recruit. Ms. Bokhari received a prize of $200 for winning the first contest through November. Nida will also receive a $400 referral bonus once each candidate reaches 90 days of employment. The house that has the most referrals combined will enjoy a catered dinner party. Good luck to everyone in this next contest period!

We hope that with this new referral program and initiating some good old-fashioned competition, we will have more staff involved in thinking about and suggesting referrals. Referrals are a great way to build our team.
